The Xiaomi MiJia Roborock Robot Vacuum comes with several more different mops and sweeps compared to the previous version.

The robot vacuum also makes less noise, is capable of better identifying carpets, and can climb small obstacles such as doorsteps more efficiently. Altogether, this leads to an overall smoother cleaning experience.

Another important improvement that comes along with the Xiaomi MiJia Roborock Robot Vacuum is the mobile application.

Weight and Dimensions

Although the Xiaomi MiJia Roborock Robot Vacuum might feature a bit more stylish design than its predecessor, the weight, and dimensions of the vacuum are almost identical. The two vacuum cleaners look very much alike. This new robot cleaner measures 13.77-Inches in width, and 13.9-Inches in length. The 3mm difference in between its length and width is brought because of a soft crash bumper that is in place to protect your furniture. The Xiaomi robot cleaner 2 features a height of 3.79-inches which efficiently allows it to clean under tables and closets.

Suction Power

Naturally, one of the most important aspects of a vacuum cleaner is going to be its suction power. With the Mi Robot Vacuum 2, you won’t be disappointed. This powerful robot vacuum cleaner brings along a stunning 2000Pa suction that is capable of cleaning dust, dirt, and small objects. With this much suction, it does not only outperforms the previous Xiaomi Robot cleaner but also many other robot vacuums available on the market.

 

Dust Capacity

With respect to the size of the dust tank, we can state that the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum 2 did not bring along much improvement. The dust bag of this vacuum cleaner can hold up to 480ml compared to the 420ml of the previous version. Although this is not bad, it is far off from what competing models such as the Roomba 980 can hold with its whopping 700ml dust bag.

Luckily the dust collector bag can be easily changed. If you do not have any pets, this vacuum might get you through 2 or 3 days of cleaning. If you do live in a busy household, however, the chance is big that you’ll have to empty and replace the dust bag at the end of every day.

Once it has completed the map, you will be able to set up a floor plan for future cleaning tasks via the dedicated mobile Application. This allows you to command your gizmo to clean a specific area of your home. The App furthermore lets you set up virtual walls to make sure your cleaning bot won’t enter a certain area of your property.
